Personal Protective Equipment
Versi-Foam® two-component spray foam systems are professional systems that should be used under proper health and safety conditions. All Versi-Foam® Systems are low-pressure products, with a dispensed pressure of below 250/psi.
The suggested Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Versi-Foam® Systems is as follows:
- Chemical resistant safety goggles
- Chemical resistant protective clothing to ensure there is no exposed skin
- Nitrile gloves (provided in all medium and large size Versi-Foam® Systems)
- A NIOSH (National Institute of Safety and Health) approved respirator
- There are many respirator options and the correct respirator may be determined based on the project conditions (e.g. ventilation) and/or the applicator preference. Several options include:
- Half-mask respirators with organic vapor cartridges and particulate filters (P100). Half-mask respirators require a fit test and cartridges/filters should be changed in accordance to a regular schedule.
- Full-mask respirators with organic vapor cartridges and particulate filters. The face-shield protects face and eyes from irritants and contaminants. Full-mask respirators require a fit test and cartridges/filters should be changed in accordance to a regular schedule.
- Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) with an organic vapor cartridge. This type of respirator offers breathing comfort from a battery-powered fan which pulls air though filters and circulates air throughout helmet/hood.
- For more respirator information, please visit www.osha.gov .OSHA Regulation 29 CFR 1910.134 Personal Protective Equipment.
The current suggested "guideline" for re-occupancy when using Versi-Foam® low-pressure dispensing systems is one hour after spraying has been completed. Adequate ventilation should be provided during application and during the one hour prior to re-occupancy.
First Aid for Low-Pressure Spray Foam Systems
The following outlines First Aid measures to be taken in case of an incident:
- For any first aid case, consult a physician.
- Eyes: Flush with water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.
- Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with plenty of soap and water. Cured foam must be removed mechanically. Seek medical attention if irritation develops or persists.
- Inhalation: Move to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If breathing has stopped, administer CPR. Seek immediate medical attention.
- Ingestion: Drink large quantities of water. Do not induce vomiting. Contact a physician immediately in any first aid situation. See Material Safety Data Sheet for more information.
